    Pros

    They take safety very seriously, and you meet varieties of people with different background expertise. Great place to learn something new.

    Cons

    Extremely disorganized system for managing stock. You can spend hours searching for inventory on the system or calling other stores only to discover that product doesn't exist or that it was discontinued five years ago. Dealing with impatient contractors can also be a pain.
